Spanish Doctor Visit
Describe Your Pain Spanish Video Lesson
Doctor Visit Spanish Vocabulary:
If you are going to visit a foreign country, you should know that it’s important to be prepared. Sometimes unfortunate things happen when you’re traveling. I would like to thank Lisa Ferguson on Facebook for suggesting this idea to have a lesson about describing your pain or illness in Spanish to a doctor. If a doctor can’t understand what you’re saying, it will make his/her job to treat your illness even more difficult. That’s just one more reason for you to learn Spanish. This Spanish lesson could save your life one day, or at least make your life a little bit less painful. Watch the video lesson above and check out the table with vocabulary below. For more body parts, check out our list of Spanish body parts so you can more accurately describe your pain.
One purpose of the Spanish video lesson is for you to be able to practice what you learn on Facebook Fiesta Friday, where practically the whole world comes to practice their Spanish every Friday! It certainly helps that we give away free learn Spanish software to at least one participant each week.
Here is the vocabulary from the video in case you can’t remember or forgot to take notes.
